DISPENSER FOR FANFOLD'TOWELS Filed NOV. 23, 1954 5 Sheets-Sheet 5 INVENTOR. (C\. MOSES Ml MQRCUSE LOUIS H MORIN ATTORNEY United States Patent 6 DISPENSER non FANFOLD TOWELS Moses M. Marcuse, New York, and Louis H. Morin, Bronx, N. Y., assiguors to West Chemical Products, Inc., a corporation of New York Application November 23, 1954, Serial No. 470,670

15 Claims. (Cl. 312-39) This invention relates to devices for dispensing paper towels of the fanfold type. More particularly, the invention deals with a device of this kind employing a tiltable carriage for support of the paper towels in a manner facilitating normal dispensing of the towels from the device and also facilitating loading of the towels upon the carriage.

Still more particularly, the invention deals with a device of the character described, wherein the carriage and towels have cooperating means for definitely positioning the towels in the carriage of device and for guiding the towels in placement in the carriage.

The novel features of the invention will be best understood from the following description, when taken together with the accompanying drawing, in which certain embodiments of the invention are disclosed and, in which, the separate parts are designated by suitable reference characters in each of the views and, in which:

Fig. l is a sectional view through a dispenser device made according to our invention, showing the parts in closed position and illustrating the arrangement of the towel in its movement through the dispenser.

Fig. 2 is a view, similar to Fig. 1, showing only part of the construction and illustrating the device in open position.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the carriage which we employ, detached.

Fig. 4 is a. perspective view of a lower front corner portion only of the casing.

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a pack of fanfold towels, diagrammatically illustrating the juncture of the end of one pack with the end of an adjacent pack; and

Fig. 6 is a perspective view of a towel engaging and carriage holding member, detached.

In Figs. 1 and 2 of the drawing, we have shown at 10 the casing of the dispenser, the casing comprising a bottom wall 11, a back wall 12 and side walls 13, 13, the latter being substantially of the same construction part only of the wall 13 being indicated in Fig. 4 of the drawing. Noting Fig. 4 of the drawing, it will be apparent that these side walls have outwardly extending flanges, noted only at 14 in Fig. 4, the flanges at the front lower corner portion of the wall 13 being cut out to receive a suitable drive or feed mechanism 15 actuated through a handcrank 16. As the mechanism 15 forms no specific part of the present conception, it is only diagrammatically shown and this mechanism is utilized to drive the main large diameter feed roller 17 supported in the front lower corner portion of the casing and in the side walls 13, 13'.

It will be noted, from a consideration of Figs. 1 and 2, that the side walls, at the lower corner portions, have rounded edges, as seen at 18 in Fig. 4 and 13' in Fig. 2. Also noting Figs. 1 and 2 of the drawing, a hood 19 is secured between the walls 13, 13 inwardly of the curved edges 18, 18, the hood terminating at its lower end in a cutting or severing edge 20 for severing a length of towel, as partly seen at 21 in Figs. 1 and 2 of the drawing,

from the remainder of the fan towel. It will also appear that the upper end portion of the hood 19 has an outwardly extending flange 22.

The top and front of the casing 10 is open, except for an inwardly extending top crossflange 23, set inwardly of the upper end of the side walls 13, 13 as clearly noted in Figs. 1 and 2 of the drawing.

Welded or otherwise secured to the side waHs and extending across the top of the casing is a strip 24 having a downwardly extending from flange 25 and an upwardly extending rear flange 26 terminating in spaced hinge portions, one of which is indicated at 27. At 28 is shown a hood-like cover comprising a top wall 29, including a hinge strip 29' cooperating with the hinges 27. The cover 23 has a front wall 39 joining the top wall in a rounded upper corner portion, as at 31, Fig. l of the drawing, and side walls, one of which is indicated at 32, the bottom and back of the cover 28 being open. The side walls 32 are sufiiciently wide to pass over the outwardly extending flanges 14 on the side walls of the casing. Thus the one side wall of the cover 23 will overlie the mechanism 15, as will be apparent.

Considering Fig. 1 of the drawing, it will appear that the lower edge portion of the front wall 3d of the cover has an inwardly curved portion 33, which seats upon the edges l8, 18'.

It will appear from a consideration of Figs. 1 and 2 of the drawing that the side walls 13, 13' of the casing have upwardly and rearwardly inclined front edge portions 34. These edge portions, near the lower part of the casing, as well as the side walls 13, 13', have downwardly inclined recesses 35, which facilitate mounting of a supplemental small diameter feed roller 36 for pressure engagement with the roller 1'7, or with the paper towel 21 fed therebetween, as clearly illustrated in Fig. 1 of the drawing. Both rollers 17 and 36 have longitudinally spaced recesses or annular grooves, as noted at 17' and 36', and operating in the grooves 17 are fingers 37 which serve to eject the paper towels from the feed roller 17 for delivery downwardly through a discharge opening 38 at the forward end of the bottom wall 11 of the casing and rearwardly of the cutter edge 2t), as is clearly noted in Fig. l of the drawing.

The side walls have, above the rollers 17, 3s, pivot apertures 39 for pivotal mounting of a paper towel carriage 40 in the casing 10, the carriage having outwardly extending pivot pins 41, note Fig. 3, for engaging the apertures 39. The carriage 4% comprises an openwork basket which is defined by a bottom wall 42, side walls 43 and 43 and front vertically spaced paper engaging wall portions, comprising a lower wall portion 44 and an upper wall portion 45, with a large opening 46 therebetween. The bottom wall portion 44 terminates at its upper edge in an outwardly and downwardly curved head 47 forming a rounded paper engaging portion, which offsets the paper, as indicated at 21' in Fig. 1 of the drawing, at a position centrally between the upper wall 45 and the roller 36. The upper wall 45 has outwardly rounded upper and lower ends 48 and 49 for free passage of the paper towel downwardly over the inner surface of the wall 45 and to the offset portion thereof, as at 21', and this construction, in conjunction with maintaining the roller 17 against rotation, facilitates severing the paper towel 21 at the cutter edge 26 without withdrawal of the paper towel from the casing or cabinet of the device.

Considering Fig. 3 of the drawing, it will appear that the bottom wall 42 has a large cutout or opening 519 and secured to the wall 42 are two angleiron supporting feet 51 which are disposed in registering position with the opening 50 for engagement with a towel engaging or feed and carriage holding member 52 in support of the carriage in the forward tilted position, as clearly seen in Fig. 2 of the drawing. The member 52 is shown in perspective detail in Fig. 6 of the drawing and comprises a yokeshaped portion defined by offset side rods 53 and a crossrod 54, the rods having outwardly extending pivot ends 55, pivot ends including collars 56 inwardly of the outer extremity of the ends 55, so as to allow the collars 56 to bear upon inner surfaces of the side walls 13, 13' in pivotal mounting of the member 52 in the lower rear corner portions of the casing, as clearly illustrated in Figs. 1 and .2 of the drawing.

Adjacent the crosshead, the side members 53 are joined by a transverse weight 57 of suflicient capacity to feed and urge the paper towels in the direction of the front walls 44, 45 of the carriage. It will be apparent that the spacing of the side rods of the member 52 is such as to pass-freely through the opening 50, so as to extend into the forwardm'ost position in the carriage, as partially indicated in dot-dash lines in Fig. 1 of the drawing.

When the carriage 40 is in its normal operative position, the bottom Wall 42 is inclined upwardly to a slight extent and, at all times, the fanfold paper towels are maintained in upright position in the casing of the device. In withdrawal of the towels, the towels are fed from the top and bottom of the fanfold and, in passing from the bottom, it will be understood that the towel moves over the rounded head portion 47 of the bottom wall 44.

It will appear from a consideration of Fig. 3 of the drawing that the side wall 43 of the carriage has inwardly projecting spaced key pins 58, which are diagrammatically shown in section in Figs. 1 and 2 ofthe drawing, to clearly illustrate the keying of the fanfold paper towels therewith.

In Fig. 5 of the drawing, I have indicated at 59 one package of paper toweling which has, along one side edge portion thereof, an aperture 60 which means that each sheet of the fanfold towel 21 will include one of the apertures 60 therein. Upper and lower surfaces of the package 59 have, adjacent one long edge portion of the package, .an elongated adhesive strip 61 so that, in placing two packages of the fanfold toweling one upon the other, the strip 61 of one package will adhere to the corresponding strip 61 of the adjacent package, thus uniting the strips as indicated diagrammatically at 62, where the lower sheet 63 of the package 59 is shown united with the upper sheet 64 of what was a lower package. By reason of the yieldable movement of the roller 36, the junction or coupling of the strips of the towel ends 63, 64, as at 62, will pass through the machine without any diificulty. The adhesive strips 61 are of a characteristic to adhere to each other and not to any other medium. It will be also understood that, by providing the single aperture 60, a definite control is provided for periodically adding packages to the carriage 40. In Figs. 1 and '2, groups of packages are indicated in part in 'full lines and part in dot-dash lines for clarity in the illustration and, in said figures, the apertures 60 are also indicated in full and in dot-dash lines.

The fanfold of paper towels consists of folding a long strip of paper toweling, the folds appearing at opposed upper and lower edges of the toweling as arranged in the carriage. In the use of the dispenser, the first package placed on the carriage will have its end threaded through the carriagefrollers and out through the bottom opening 38, in the manner clearly illustrated. Thereafter, unless all of the toweling has been discharged from the dispenser, the placement of added packages upon the remaining portions of the fanfold paper will automatically attach the paper, as set forth, thus producing an endless paper toweling, removable from the dispenserr It will also be apparent that, by operation of the feed mechanism15 through the medium of the handcrank 16, a desired length of toweling will be fed through the opening 50, whereupon, this protruding length will be grasped by the hand and severed along the cutting edge 20.
